Notes

A scarce dual-language edition of the satires of Persius (and those attributed to Sulpicia, a slightly later female Roman satirist), with facing pages of the original Latin and a translation into Italian by Marco Aurelio Soranzo. Worldcat locates only a handful of copies, none in the UK (Harvard, Yale, Copenhagen, and Goettingen).
